Hey DK - 

Thanks for joining the site and posting the video.

I created a new group for English teachers in China since a few have recently joined.  Click here to join the group - we will probably need to invite other teachers to get it started.

Let me know if you have other ideas for how to make the site better.

Thanks,

Brandon
